The two biggest Japanese carriers lost at Midway have been discovered at a depth of roughly 18,000 feet.

Footage of Kaga has been posted; it makes for somber viewing.

Interesting thanks for sharing, I wonder if there is a database somewhere showing the location of all the sunk warships of WW2?

I've recently been doing research on this:

https://www.ibiblio.org/hyperwar/Japan/IJN/JANAC-Losses/JANAC-Losses-6.html



and found some related links:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_maritime_disasters_in_World_War_II

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_Navy_losses_in_World_War_II

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Royal_Navy_losses_in_World_War_II


hope this can be of some use!
